Not better than standard tire levers

        Comments about Crank Bros. Speed Levers:

        I bought this at the same time as I bought a new tube and tire. I tried to use it to take off the old tire (700cx23). I could not really make any progress with removing the tire. Maybe if I tried harder, I could have figured it out. Instead, though, I used two standard tire levers and got the job done without a hitch.
        I will try it again the next time I have to replace a tire, but it's not an obvious game changer.

                This doesn't fit every under-seat bag, but it's worth having as it makes roadside service super quick & easy. It's one of those items that makes you wonder why it wasn't thought of before.

                  Bought my first one over ten years ago. Used this on a tour as my fellow cyclists looked on. Now they've chucked their levers and carry this tool.I keep this version in the "shop" and carry a Speedier Lever" on each bike. I have tight narrow tires and loose fitting ones you don't need a lever for. The tighter ones do require more effort for the last 12-18 inches. If you are having trouble you may need to be more deliberate and precise getting the bead down in the rim. I have never and don't know anyone who has ever broken either version.

                        This is a great tool to have while riding. It really limits the time it takes to change a flat. It is great when removing and placing the tire back on the rim. The only issue is when dealing with a new tire and you may need to use additional conventional tire irons place the tire on the rim.

                        Perhaps a cool concept, but very underdesigned implementation...the pry tip snapped on first use. I've changed hundreds of tires successfully with one or a pair of regular nylon tire levers and have a pretty good sense of how much pressure is usually required, so I'm certain that I wasn't asking too much of something designed for this purpose, but it snapped. I contacted Crack Bros., got a return authorization, and sent it back to them for warranty replacement (postage at my expense). That was over two years ago and I've never heard boo or peep from them despite multiple attempts to contact them. I see no point to this product (tire levers work great) and I wouldn't put any stock in the Crank Bros. warranty.

                            Great one tool solution for tire changes. But the weak plastic did not hold up to a stiff sidewall tire.

                            I got one of these because everyone said it worked great. They were only half right. On tires that don't fit really tight on your rim this is a handy tool. It will pop off the tire and then you can quickly go around the tire remove it. Unfortunately this doesn't work so sell with tight fitting tires. On those tires it is hard to remove the tire and put it back on. Not to mention that this eventually broke on one of those tight tires. I'm being generous and giving it three stars because for many tires this is a good device.

                                  Works good but had a hard time getting it started. Really need a second to get the removal start and to help put the tire back on.
